KCVP Change in Services
The King County Veterans Program is dedicated to continuing to serve the Veterans in our community during this very challenging time. In an effort to do our part in slowing the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) we will be shifting our operations from in person to online.
During these changing times and with school closures, some of our community members in King County have reached out to find out where to locate resources such as food, utility assistance, health care/ health plans, and learning/ educational sources.
We compiled a resource list to share with our providers and community members. Please see the attached list, Summary of Community and School Resources in King County, The list is organized by community organizations/groups and by school districts.
PLEASE NOTE: This list was developed by DCHS to assist individuals and families as a public service; however, it is not comprehensive and being included on this list does not imply endorsement. Information on this list is also subject to change so please do check with the organizations/ groups/school districts for specific details.
